You have totally came to the right place.

My favorite necromancer is my summoner. I like him because he is nearly impossible to kill by monsters. (most notably was my NM cows event)

his skills are...

20 Raise Skeleton
20 Skeleton Mast
16 Skeleton Mage (going to be 20)
1 Clay golem
1 Golem Mastery
1 Summon Resist
1 In all curses

Recomended Equiptment

Tarnhelm (+1 to all skills)
Eye of Elitch (+1 to all skills)
Gravespine (+2 necro skills)
Sigons Sheild (+1 to all skills)
Silks of Victor (+1 to all skills)
Forstburns (+40% mana)
Sigons Belt (Good Defence)
Sigons Boots (+30% run walk, +50% mf)

That stuff is what made my summoner OWN, In fact I still use alot of my original equiptment in lvl 65. Just replace what you see with Trangs helm, gloves, and armor. At an added bounus, this stuff is REALLY cheap. Or easy to find.

My stats:

110 str
~140 dex
~130 vit
25 energy

"That stuff is what made my summoner OWN" He would still be very strong without that equiptment.

Great suggestion, just, you might not need so much in Dexterity in this build, as your skeletons will be in front actively tanking and passively meat-shielding. Your Golem will do the same, and your skeleton mages will generally be around you.

Put the rest into vitality.

How about a bone specialist (I like the style "Dentist", myself).

20 points intermittently to maxing for Teeth, Bone Spear and Bone Spirit,
1 point to clay golem and golem mastery.
Curses only up to Life Tap (for Merc survival)
20 points each (to maxing later in the game at high lvls) to Bone Wall and Bone Prison.
Get an Act 2 Merc. Read the forums to decide which on.

Note that all skills starting with "Bone" lend each offensive spell synergy bonuses.

Equipment should allow for decent resists and quick retreat, mana maintenance, and casting speed increase. Have fun!
